Will Facebook and Twitter still be the running force of social media for 2014? Will there be new players? Who will fall off the charts? These seem to be the questions going around in the social media world in the beginning of 2014. The article by Forbes Magazine makes 7 major predictions for 2014 social media market. Some of them, are expected but some are surprises. For example
Google+ will be one of the major competitors for Facebook and twitter. Its predicted that people will move towards having a media outlet “one fits all” mentality and will opt towards Google+. Another surprise will be MySpace, as the company has rebranded itself and is expected to make a huge comeback. My questions to you would be:
1. With Googe+ growing (400million users) how will it impact its market share? Also knowing this, if you don’t have Google+ will you be joining Google+ in the near future?
2. If MySpace does make a comeback, will this set a pattern for possibly other forgotten social media outlets to make a comeback as well?
3. Thoughts on the decline number of Four Square users and the expand of short video contents
